Maybe “nobody’s perfect,” as one character in this masterpiece suggests. But some movies are perfect, and Some Like It Hot is one of them. In Chicago, during the Prohibition era, two skirt-chasing musicians, Joe and Jerry (Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon), inadvertently witness the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre. In order to escape the wrath of gangland chief Spats Colombo (George Raft), the boys, in drag, join an all-woman band headed for Florida. Amazon  4.7 stars from over 310 users

This is one of the wildest farces ever filmed, but it has a lot of heart as well, with brilliant performances by all three stars. BeliefNet Movie Mom A+ with content warnings
